Ray J on 'Love & Hip Hop'

Intense Give & Hate Negotiations ...

But He's Coming Back

3/26/2015 3:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ray J Love And Hip Hop DealRay J wants more love ... "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" producers want more drama -- but they still hammered out a deal to keep him on the show, save his relationship, and line his pockets all at once.

Ray J hashed out his problems with the show's creator, Mona Scott, at dinner Wednesday night ... along with his girlfriend, Princess Love.

As TMZ first reported, Ray J quit the show because he felt it only showed his relationship with Princess Love in a negative light and he thought the show was hurting them.

We're told Ray J asked Mona to show more of the good parts of his and PL's relationship. Mona agreed, but insisted on keeping some drama on cam too. She knows what pays the bills. 

In the end, we're told Ray agreed to more balance -- and just to seal the deal, Mona sweetened the pot with a new contract that includes ratings bonuses. 

You take the good, you take the bad ... but most of all, you take the money.

0326_taylor_swift_calvin_harris_twitter-2Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris surfaced in Nashville ... could it be?

Taylor and the famous DJ were coming out of Whole Foods Wednesday night -- wearing matching shirts no less --  when 2 people snapped the pics. 

This isn't the first time they've been together recently. Taylor went to Calvin's concert in Vegas earlier this month. There were reports he chartered a jet to fly her to the gig.

They got all flirty at the Brit Awards after-party in London back in February.

Shopping for food together ... hmmm.

David Arquette

Picks Spray Paint Over Strippers

For Vegas Bachelor Party

3/26/2015 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0326-david-arquette-graffiti-FACEBOOK-01David Arquette is an artist at heart ... even with ass in his face -- and the freshly tagged wall of a Vegas strip club proves it. 

Our stripper sources tell us ... Arquette and his boys were at the Hustler Las Vegas last weekend for his bachelor party -- but instead of draining their bank accounts for lap dances .. they went outside and put a fresh layer of graffiti on the side of the club.

David's been dabbling in graffiti, and as a Hustler L.V. regular ... we're told the club manager gave him and his crew the green light to tag at will. The whole thing took about an hour, but David's no fool ... his posse went inside for few dances before calling it a night.

At least that's the story they're telling his fiancee, Christina McLarty.

Ben Affleck

Support the Congo

And BTW, Their Chocolate is Awesome!

3/26/2015 1:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ben Affleck loves the people of the Congo, and really loves their coffee and chocolates.

Our photog Colin got Ben coming out of a Senate hearing where he testified about his Eastern Congo Initiative, which helps people in the region. 

Ben mused about the beans and the bars ... and acknowledged Senator Patrick Leahy who has a cameo in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

In the hearing, Ben said to Leahy, "I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my co-star in Batman. The role is marginally smaller than; mine, but I understand you are quite good."

'Empire' Star Malik Yoba

I Found the Guy Behind False Drug Rumors ...

He Better Apologize!!

3/26/2015 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Empire" star Malik Yoba is shooting down the rumors he was fired from the hit show because he was abusing drugs -- and he's getting an apology from the guy who spread the rumor in the first place.

Malik came on TMZ Live to set the record straight, telling us he spent money to find the blogger behind the false report -- which unfortunately spread like crazy on the Internet. He assured us he's never had any issues with substance abuse ... a claim he says anyone he's ever worked with would support.

In fact, Malik explained how "Empire" creator Lee Daniels had his back when the rumor started spreading.

As for the blogger ... Malik told us the guy promised to post a retraction -- which he did early Thursday afternoon.

Bravo

Brandi's Nipples Were an Accident!

3/26/2015 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brandi Glanville's nipple was never supposed to make an appearance on the season finale of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... so says the network.

Our production sources tell us their people QC'd the video and never saw areola ... they swear.  It's a little weird, since Kim Richards called it out earlier in the scene saying, "Before you go any further, your nipple is hanging out." 

Our sources say there were hours of footage for the scene, and it just ... well, you know, slipped by.

We're told Bravo is re-editing the scene for re-runs, and as you know, they run endlessly.  

One on level, Brandi could really make a stink about this, but we're guessing she loves it.

Rich Homie Quan Alleged Victim

Not So Fast 007 ...

I'm Suing!

3/26/2015 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0326-rich-homie-quan-security-guard-injuries-TMZ-02We hope Rich Homie Quan likes his lawsuits shaken and not stirred ... the security guard he allegedly beat unconscious in Miami is now dragging him to court.  

According to docs ... Christian Cajigas says he's been disfigured and left in intense physical pain and is suing for the attack that he says left him beaten to a bloody pulp outside LIV Nightclub in Miami Beach.

As TMZ previously reported ... last Saturday RHQ and his boys were allegedly turned away by Cajigas at the club, and that didn't sit well with James Quan-d who allegedly wailed on him before taking off on a speedboat like James Bond.

Cajigas and his attorney Eric Hertz -- the same guy who represented the woman Tim McGraw slapped -- are asking for an unspecified amount of cash ... but it definitely sounds like a lot.

That boat ride could end up pricey.

Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart

Back To Bangin' ...

Sealed With A Kiss

3/26/2015 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0326_casper_smart_jennifer_lopez_kissing_fameflynetNot that Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have been fooling anyone -- but they're officially banging again ... and we're basing that on the fact they're finally swapping spit in public again.

Smart swung by "American Idol" Wednesday night to scoop up JLo and they kissed out in the open for everyone to see. They've been sprinkling clues for months -- slipping out of a GQ event together, partying at Big Sean's House of Blues gig ... and his dogs were at her house (which didn't end well).  

They broke up last April after 2 1/2 years, but what if it was all for show?

J.Lo's insisted they're just friends, but after so much smoke ... this has to be a 3-alarmer.
